Thanks to brunoiaz for writing this! -Mr Waffle Wiki48 Creating a account To create a account, send a PM to one of the Wiki administrators (@Mr Waffle, @brunoiaz, @kk127 or @natsu-kun). If you are active enough, you will receive an email in the account you registered to the forum with to complete the process. After doing this, you can begin to edit the wiki. Generally speaking, forum users, who meet the following “requirements”, will get an account: account on forum registered several months long. has made 40-50 (or more) posts on forum is preferably an active member on forum (you will not be shot if you haven’t posted anything for few weeks so don’t worry) (These “requirements” exist to prevent unknown people from editing our wiki, since we don’t know what their intention for editing wiki is. Since we have spent years building the wiki to the point where it is now, we don’t want it to be vandalized. Still can’t say enough thanks for everyone, who have participated building wiki during all these years! In case you have registered recently and your request is rejected, just start posting on the forum. You can start from simple things like introducing yourself to other forum members or share photos/videos and/or talk about your favorite members.) How to edit These guides may help you with editing pages on the Wiki: Mediawiki Wikipedia Wiki48 Guide Since most of our pages are already standardized, feel free to use one as reference.

If you plan to make big changes on several pages, please leave a post in this thread. For smaller edits the post is optional. Feedback If you have any suggestions, criticism or opinions, please leave a post in this thread! Original post for historical purposes: Spoiler If you would like to contribute: Signing up to edit the wiki is disabled due to spambots; please PM the admin Mr Waffle with the username you would like to use, he will create an account for you and you're good to go. ----------------- so i went ahead and made the thread as we were discussing in the Sugestions and release list threads, even if Mr.Waffle still can't update the wiki (not that we are losing much stuff, the most important thing i know of is the "Navbox" function, that are basically just for organization. as most people probably have no idea what a navbox is by the name, it's this and i'm sure everyone saw one of those at least once before in any other wiki) some of us are already helping to update and create a lot of pages that were never created before (such SKE or SDN pages). **everything i'll write here is up to change since it's just my opinion, i'll be editing this post when we decide all together how we will organize this** http://stage48.net/wiki/ Members collaborating / Pages they are updating/creating - aakun: Making Single,Album,etc Pages - Naomi: Member Pages (12 members) - flagator21: Minegishi and No3b Page - rafaelaboy80: Itano/Nonaka/Kasai Pages - AnOriginalName: Stage Song Pages - sada: Stage Pages and Songs (?) (Most Important, basic) Pages that need to be updated - AKB48 Members (all) (Most Important, basic) Pages that need to be created - AKB48 Members (9th gen and 10th gen) - SKE48 Members (all) - SDN48 Members (all) Ideas for future pages/etc - - - You want to help but have no idea how to use wiki? http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Help:Contents http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Help:Contents wiki works with HTML, so you'll have to learn how to use it. it's nothing hard and it'll take some time but it'll get easier and easier with practice (since it's pretty similar to bbcode it shouldn't be too hard for anyone used to how a forum works). i put both real wiki and media wiki since their help sections are different and both helped me when i was learning about this. don't be lazy and try to do something, from simple editing to brand new pages where can we get information to post? this forum?. for the members articles, starting with a basic copy-paste of the information of the 1st post of that member's thread is a good idea. using for example, Matsubara Natsumi's wiki page and edit from there is a another way to do it. then if you have a basic knowledge of japanese, i recommend the AKB japanese wiki and memolist for stage subs and tour setlists, etc. Member Basic Template http://stage48.net/wiki/index.php?title=Member_Page as you can see, this is just an example of what a member page should basically look like. it has all the format mostly done and you'll only need to copy/paste some stuff. if you feel there's need to add more sections or a better guide post it here. basically what you need to do is click here and copy the code, then edit it correctly according the member page you are doing. never forget to post in the thread which members are you going to do! about the pictures, we are ONLY using the official ones. (if you don't have them as for them here or in the member's thread, someone will surely help you) Stage Template the same guide as for the member page.
